Percentages (for each section and each week)

The percentage calculation is the same for each section:

  • The number of times an entry was made for each charting section is counted and then divided by the total number of possible entries for the current week.
  • The value displays as a percentage.
  • The percentages indicate portion of residents on a nursing unit having documentation completed. For example, 99.4 percent meal intake for breakfast means that 99.4 percent of residents on the nursing unit have their meal documentation charted.
